...in the restive northern state of Sinaloa

"Restive?" Sinaloa is much more than "restive."

“(of a person) Unable to keep still or silent and becoming increasingly difficult to control.”

Pathetic cnn trying always to be politically correct and refusing to acknowledge the truth!

Yeah, if Sinaloa is “restive,” then how would CNN describe Beirut circa 1982? “Lively?”

She was thought to have connections with the “criminals”, reportedly, but there was said to be no elaboration on the comment.

Very too bad.

Article says she was with the bad guys. These days, particularly in Mexico, that term is almost worthless.

CNN would also say that Pol Pot was “ecologically progressive” and a “strong proponent of population control.”

Some of the 'comments' below the article are quite interesting.

Sad story though.

Article says she was with the bad guys.

The comments offer an explanation of what "with" might mean:

"Being a beauty queen in Mexico or quite a few other countries in Central/South America basically means you become the "girlfriend" of some high ranking cartel member. Sex slavery basically."

Was she a target, a victim, or an innocent bystander?

“She was with the gang of criminals, but we cannot say whether she participated in the shootout,” state Higuera said. “That’s what we’re going to have to investigate.”
